Many states now allow you to leave real estate through a transfer-on-death (TOD) deed—a special kind of deed that takes effect only at your death. With a TOD deed, no probate court proceeding will be necessary to transfer the real estate to the beneficiary you name on the deed.
Here, you'll find the TOD deed form that's designed specifically for your state, plus complete instructions for filling it in. Learn how to:
- Enter a legal description of the property.
- Correctly enter the beneficiary's name and other information.
- Sign the deed and have your signature notarized.
- Record it in your local land records office.
NOTE: This type of deed will not work to transfer real estate into your living trust. For that, you can use a Quitclaim Deed.
